Christmas is just around the corner
It's that time of year when everyone is thinking (and feeling stressed out) about the holidays. With so many things to do and so little time, we want to get things done fast but we also want the work to be as best it can be. Sometimes we don't have the luxury or energy for both.
One of the many things on many families' To Do List is sending out a Christmas card or newsletter. If you're like many families, you find yourself at the beginning of December and realize that you lack that magical picture of your family that would be a perfect fit for your Christmas announcement. Which picture did we take this year that captures who we are as a family? I can say that happened to my family and I'm guessing it's happened to yours one year or another. So you say to yourself: "Do I settle for that picture a perfect stranger took of us on vacation or do we hire a photographer?"
I know what you're thinking. "Now he's going to advocate why you should hire him."
You got me. Obviously, I think hiring a photographer is the best idea. But rather than list my qualifications and experience I just going to say one thing. You're worth it. Your family deserves to have a professional image that encapsulates this particular moment in time for you to cherish forever. To put it another way, life is short and you want to make sure you have a tangible record of the good times. When you're 72, you can call up the image you had taken for your 2015 Christmas card and trace your finger over the smile of your little one and see the light in her eyes. This is why I am a photographer, an archivist of memories if you will. Keep in mind that while there is a fee for professional photography services, you will have your images forever. Stretched over time, the images ultimately amount to a fraction of a penny if measured by a person's lifetime.
Anyhow, I mainly want to share two of my favorite images from a recent family Christmas card shoot featuring the Rota family. Enjoy!
